Obama could pick new press secretary by week's end

President Obama could tap a new White House press secretary by the end of this week, outgoing spokesman Robert Gibbs said Wednesday.

The candidates, according to Democrats familiar with the process, include two veteran party operatives who don't currently work at the White House: former Democratic National Committee spokeswoman Karen Finney and Doug Hattaway, who served as spokesman for Al Gore's 2000 presidential campaign and then for Hillary Rodham Clinton's 2008 quest for the Democratic nomination.

Several internal candidates are also being considered, including deputy press secretary Bill Burton, deputy communications director Jennifer Psaki and Jay Carney, the vice president's communications director, the sources said.

The choice of a new press secretary will be another step in a reshuffle of White House staff that began two months ago and is not yet complete. If Hattaway or Finney is selected, it would add another outsider to the Obama's team, a few weeks after the president tapped William Daley as the White House chief of staff.

Daley and White House senior adviser David Plouffe, who recently joined the West Wing staff, are interviewing the press secretary candidates.

I’m thinking David Gregory. Not as over the top as Olberbite but, just as much an a-hole.

If I were POTUS, Mark Steyn would be my pick for press secretary. I would not accept “no” for an answer.
